up? let's ask wall street journal columnist bill mcguerin, and analyst steve moore and washington columnist kim strassel. so, kim, the president won reelection, was this the hand of magnimty reaching out to the republicans? >> it's crazy, it's what the president says all the time. if you listen to the press conference, he seems to say the biggest wish list for his liberal partisans has become docile letting these tax rates expire. while the republicans have moved, they are offering revenue, this is a change from their position, while the frame work is potentially there for a deal, the president no compromise, no compromise. >> paul: what's his strategy, bill, here? what is he thinking? obviously, if we don't get a deal we do go off the tax cliff and the with the consequential danger to the economy. >> kim is right, you're right, the math doesn't add up, the politics adds up. $. >> how so? >> i'm afraid what's going to happen we're not only going to get bad policy, a tax increase and so forth. but we're going to-- the republican party as opposed to bad policy are also going to get
closed hearings where the cia shared classified information with lawmakers. steve handelsman is on capitol hill this afternoon. steve, what did they learn? >> reporter: pat, thanks, good evening. according to one democrat, who attended one of those two closed-door sessions here up on the hill, the cia threw a politically important lifeline to obama, u.n. ambassador dr. susan rice. but the overall issue remains highly political, highly partisan. even personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator john mccain, who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states, for two weeks afterwards, to deny that that was the case, is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. acting cia director mike morerel on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> that this was a spontaneous protest tha

republican votes on this. and the deal he wants to avoid the fiscal cliff. live from capitol hill, steve handelsman, news4. >>> steve, thank you. now, for more on the scandal involving the former cia director, nbc's pete williams joins us now. there's so many developments in so many different directions in this story. what's happened today? >> well, today we learned general petraeus will in fact testify before the senate about what happened in benghazi. it will be in a closed session. we're told actually he volunteered to do it. the senate said they wanted to hear from him, but his friends say he called the cia, called his associates there and said i do want to testify. today the director of the fbi and his deputy director went up and talked to some members of congress about why the fbi did not inform them or the white house, while this investigation was still going on. the fbi insisted from the beginning that there are clear rules about when you tell other people what you're finding out in the middle of an investigation. they said that involves only intelligence activities, and that the
not to disclose the al qaeda connection to the attack, in order to avoid tipping off the terrorists. steve handelsman is on capitol hill now with a special treatment that congress gave to the retired general. steve? >> reporter: hi, jim. it wasn't a hot seat, it was more a warm welcome up here on capitol hill tonight. some republicans are still charging that somebody played politics with what the public was told about benghazi. petraeus testified that if that happened, it wasn't the fault of the cia. former cia director david petraeus kept out of sight until he got home. lawmakers had cleared the way for him to get to the closed-door hearing without walking through halls. a favor to the general, who apologized to lawmakers for his affair. petraeus testified the cia figured immediately it was al qaeda that attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. killing the u.s. ambassador and three others. how the cia with an eye on libya missed the threat is still under investigation. but petraeus' testimony helped. >> it added to our ability to make judgments about what is clearly a failure of intellige

of the agenda during president obama's first news conference since winning the election. steve handelsman has the report. >> reporter: president obama tried to show off the power, claiming voters backed his call for tax hikes on the rich. but that message had a distraction. the petraeus problem. >> i have no evidence at this point, from what i've seen, that classified information was disclosed, that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: the president's withholding judgnt on the fbi keeping secrets. but he praised his ex-cia chief. >> we're safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done. >> reporter: issue two was the fiscal cliff and taxes. >> what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for people who don't need it. >> reporter: republicans demand no rate hike. can there be a deal finally to cut deductions and raise what the rich pay in taxes. >> i recognize we're going to have to compromise. as i said on election night, compromise is hard. >> reporter: issue three, libya. four americans dead in benghazi. republicans today demand

involved steve croft is very balanced. when it was discovered that they had news, they did put it out there. too late that they put it out. >> why not do it the week before? >> i think probably if you take what judy says and accept that as the truth, i would say it speaks to a bigger problem with the media. they weren't following the benghazi story. they bought the administration's line. that is what happened to candy crowley. they weren't following this. they were taking a direction from the white house and parolting what they heard. the fact that he didn't know it was news says more about the broader media culture. >> jon: let's imagine during the debate candy crowley had backed up the president, if somebody enterprising news producer, probably 25 saw that interview, thissaid, wait a minute we have news here. we could play the president and his thinking on the day after the attack. what would that have done? >> i think it would have made a big difference. look what they did to condi rice or abu abu ghraib. or the media had a template number one horse race. oh, by the way, sub text, suppor
